|In response to Re: excessive water in sump|
I encourage home owners with sumps, to if at all possible, create a gravity drain from the problem to a working drain, be it the City storm or even down to the street below. Using a good quality pipe such as ABS or thick PVC and plumbing fittings will allow the use of a snaking machine if there are problems with the line later.
With homes I have built, I was able to intercept the water before it entered the dwelling, with the use of pea gravel and perf pipe or with a gravity drain from inside the footings. No pumps were used.
